Rural social work : International perspectives, Paperback / softback Book

Rural social work : International perspectives Paperback / softback

Part of the BASW/Policy Press Titles series


In much of the West the concerns of rural people are marginalised and rural issues neglected.

This stimulating book draws upon a rich variety of material to show why rural social work is such a challenging field of practice.

It incorporates research from different disciplines and places to provide an accessible and comprehensive introduction to rural practice.

The first part of the book focuses upon the experience of rurality.

The second part of the book turns to the development of rural practice, reviewing different ways of working from casework through to community development.

This book is relevant to planners, managers and practitioners not only in social work but also in other welfare services such as health and youth work, who are likely to face similar challenges.
